Our work

We publish statistics on terrorism arrests and outcomes. These statistics include:

  • people arrested and charged
  • the age group and ethnicity of suspects
  • time from arrest to charge/release
  • convictions for terrorist-related offences
  • numbers of extremist/terrorist prisoners
  • stops and searches under terrorism legislation
  • police cordons and port examinations

We publish these statistics under section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000 and other legislation, including the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984. They are based on information provided by the ACPO Counter Terrorism Coordination Centre.

Archived publications

We have archived a lot or our publications since the general election (12 May 2010). These publications are still interesting and informative research materials, they are simply stored on the National Archive website. You can find them by browsing the archived counter-terrorism publications on the National Archives website.
